ARTIST'S STATEMENT

The jewelry products and hand-braided leather goods featured in the Mountain Angels Trading Co catalog represent the best of the past twenty five years of my silversmithing and leather braiding. Since my favorite work is the fashioning of western bola ties, I often describe myself as a "bolosmith." This is a word I coined to mean a craftsman who has simple working knowledge of metals, gems and leather braiding. I continually design and create new pieces and am open to discussing custom-made jewelry orders and ideas...

Archetypal forms, pictographs, symbolic icon, personal experiences and totem images found along the "Shiny Trail" influence many of the jewelry designs, amulets and bolos which I create. I am a boatman, campfire musician, songwriter, Permaculture Certified gardener, environmental activist, gardener, beekeeper, student of life and grateful father of 2 wonderful young men sons.

When making jewelry, one of my main goals is to infuse Chi, or life force, into each piece I make. Most of my jewelry products include a written text of information, which help to interpret the significance of a petroglyph, shape, symbol or spiritual icon. I hope that you find my jewelry designs attractive, emotionally meaningful and empowering...

I appreciate each and every order and strive to provide the best customer service possible. I guarantee that you will be satisfied with the quality of every product purchased from Mountain Angels Trading Company. If not, you may return it within 15 days from purchase date for a full refund or credit on replacement.

Sincerely,
John Caccia's signature
ps. All jewelry, castings and products offered by MATC are USA produced, designed, braided and/or made by Idaho bolosmith John Caccia.

Dear John,
I just received my amulet in the mail.  I wanted you to know how much I love it!  It is perfect in every single way possible.  It's exactly what I wanted and you brought it to reality.  Thank you so much for your amazing work.  I will cherish this for years to come. There is something very spiritual with your work.  I feel like you captured a piece of my heart and put it into silver for me to wear.  Thank you so much for everything.
You are my new favorite silver smith!
Lara

Hi John, want you to know the keyring and bracelet are more beautiful than I expected! And, today is my 16th wedding anniversary.
Good medicine. Thank you so much. Hope all is well with you.
Jenny

Hi John,
We returned from our rafting trip on the Salmon. It was fantastic!!!  I just want to thank you.  The jewelry gifts were very much appreciated and everyone is enjoying them.  I will certainly think of you and your beautiful artwork for future gift giving ideas and celebrations.    Your jewelry reminds me of the wonderful nourishing time we had on the Salmon.
Sincerely,
Ann


G'day John

Dear John,
The pendant arrived and it's fantastic!!! I first ordered this earlier this
year as a "thank you" gift for our ski team organizer. She loved it and then
our ski coach bought one!!! My son wants this one, so I may need to get yet
another!!! I'll be in touch! Thanks so much for such a neat keepsake!!
Joan


John –
Thank you! The two bolos arrived safely today, & a very good restoration job indeed you have done!  
My wife & I are retiring to resume living in New Zealand in a fortnight’s time, after 27 years of work in Queensland. 
Even in New Zealand, nobody will have such good bolos! 
With best wishes,
Peter

Hello John - Wanted to let you know that the St. Bernard medals arrived on SATURDAY.  I am delighted - they are even more attractive in person than on the computer monitor.  The bronze is the perfect metal for my sons.  Thank you for filling my order so promptly.   Patricia

John,  
Thanks a lot for getting back to me so quickly.   I do not know you well at all but just from your work I know
that you are in touch with the water and earth and that is a good thing.   Again, thanks so much for getting back to me, John.  
Happy Solstice,  
Tom
